manhattan this morning. brandi, we thank you for that report. and they knew it would be bad, but the intensity and cope of sandy took even the most seasoned weather experts by complete surprise. >> no one thought it would be this bad. after covering storms for decade. abc's sam champion was amazed as he rode out this one in the hardest hit area of manhattan. >> reporter: after 30 years of covering storms, there was no doubt in of my mind that sandy was going to be the superstorm predicted, simply because no super-charged hybrid storm like
this had ever made landfall. it was a hurricane wrapped in a nor'easter. we are standing as the rolling water laps over the edge. there is already a white kapp. i knew there would be serious flooding by the next high tide. you can't see the edge of the fence. i can't get there anyway. that means the water is about this high there. just after 10:00 monday night, i was stunned to realize the extent of that flooding. there we were, all surrounded by water now trapped on an island inside an island, looking for a way to get out. first driving south, then east, and then north, only to find a blockade of water at every turn. we had no choice but to retreat to the highest possible spot and wait out the night. we were lucky. the water went down in a matter of hours and we were able to get out. frl others who have suffered the the effect of sandy, the way to be clear of those effects will be much longer. sam champion, abc newsne
